Get ready for picture overload, because that's all I've got for you today! I'm in love, I'm content & it only took me half a Saturday to put up!

Gather your supplies:
A dowel, felt in your colors choice, adhesive felt in a contrasting color, twine, &
optional 2 felt balls for added cuteness.
To use the letters I did, make sure you're cutting your banner edge landscape so it's wide enough.
After you've cut your dowel to the right size, tie your bakers twine on either side. This is also the time to tie on those felt balls if you're using them
Carefully glue a straight line on your felt and press your dowel onto it. Set it aside and start working on your letters! I like doing the banner first, so I know exactly where I need my letters.
Similar to the Felt Pennants tutorial, trace your letters onto the BACK (paper side) of your
adhesive felt. Make sure that B is backwards!
Once you've decided on your placement, carefully remove the paper backing and apply your letters.
You did it! So easy, the hardest part may be deciding where to hang it now!
And of course, you could always flip the color scheme & make the banner white and the letters black, or throw in some color! Have a spooktacular time with it! No...ew...I actually hate that saying. Despise it. It's makes me twitch for some reason. Just go make a BOO banner, k?
Save the image below to use the letters for your own sign!

I was being my normal self this week and waited until the last minute to take pictures of my Fourth of July decor, so of course the storms rolled in and kept things nice and overcast. Which helps keeps the temperature under triple digits, but it doesn't help take indoor photos.
Lesson learned....but nonetheless, here are a few shots of the patriotic decor I put up this year!

Cinco de Mayo has become one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. All the bright colors and fun ways to decorate...we WILL be festive in this half mexican household!! This wreath is the perfect craft to whip up this week in time to enjoy at your fiesta!
Take your felt in bright, Cinco de Mayo colors and cut into 2" inch strips.
If your wreath form isn't white already, like mine, spray with a quick coat of white spray paint while you fringe your strips of felt.
I had a smaller wreath and I found I could cut my strips in half to wrap and then glue around the wreath with just a titch of wreath showing on the back. Works for me!
Go go go until you're turned your wreath into a little felt pinata! It is so bright & although it's not traditional crepe paper, this way it's more sturdy and can handle being packed away in storage.
